Hello to all of you, sounded like most of you if not all had a good July 4th, myself was with my daughter and her family.. Went to watch firework on the 3rd and 4th..
On the 4th the firework display was at a church with things for kids to do, with a life band, well I was dancing as I hit uneven ground and down I came.
bruise my wrist but never told anyone I was hurting, in fact I just laugh got up and started dancing again.. but the next morning the soreness was there when I woke up and it was stiff. , so in the morning each day it's so stiff but thankful I didn't damage it..

For some of you that has been following my facebook page may have seen the video that my son in law took of me.. LOL

also you may have seen my new adventure that I'm stepping up to do..
I thought long and hard before I agreed to be part of it, but now i'm exciting and working toward it..
you may be asking what is it? well I'm going to be in a Senior Pageant, NO it's not a beauty pageant, it a pageant for Senior and you have to been asked to be in it.. I felt honor to be asked by the director of it, that has been doing pageants for 30 + years even the Donald Trump ones, I believe the Miss American ones. so again I felt honor even more so after learning this.

I will have to go thru an interview, write 50 words on Philosophy of life, modeling a long dress, and talent. In case you guess my talent will be dancing , you right on in your answer.
I'll be doing Proud Mary, my daughter has helped me with a choreograph for the slow part and then I will free style dance during the fact part and wrap it up (if I can remember the steps and don't forget to) go back into a choreograph routine at the end.

I'm doing this for several reasons,
1. to show where I've been i life from the shy, shelter child that no one ever thought I could do anything to who I am today.
2) In honor of John, as he always wanted me to overcome my low self esteem, and boy this is one way of stepping up to the plate to get out of my comfort zone.. and again to prove to myself I have came a long way.
3) for fun, adventure, friendship, experience,
4) to promote aging as I totally believe age is a # and as we grow older don't cave into the couch or chair, continue to enjoy life as much as you can..

this is not a red hat pageant, but several of the red hat ladies that I do know are in it, one is a very dear friend of mine, so we are excited we can share this together for the first time, as it her first year as well..

Beside doing this I'm on the ground floor of helping someone putting together a grief group for our area.

Seems life is flip again for me, but in a good way, and I'm excited that I can be a part of.. just wish John was here to see me, but of course if he was, I wouldn't be helping putting together a grief group.. so again each thing as it's purpose as we life each day to it's fullest..

Off I go now to play a few of the games, and get myself off to bed..
Hugs and friendship

below is the day I received my booklet for the pageant.
